Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is interwoven in every therapy offered at Bronson Behavioral Health Hospital. This evidence-based therapy method is highly effective in treating the diverse needs of people who are struggling with mental health concerns by helping them understand the connection between their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.
Comprehensive Discharge Planning
At Bronson Behavioral Health Hospital, we understand that the healing journey extends beyond the inpatient setting. Our comprehensive discharge planning ensures that each patient has a personalized plan for continued care and support. We begin discharge planning from day one, so every patient can feel confident that they have a strategy once treatment is complete.
Patients and their families work closely with our team of psychiatrists and therapists to plan for continuing care services after treatment. These services may include ongoing therapy, outpatient treatment, support group referrals, or connections with community resources. We are committed to guiding patients through this transition, empowering them to build a fulfilling and balanced life after inpatient treatment.
